This rambling, century-old stone building is identifiable by its iron balconies overlooking the busy square just inside the Jaffa Gate. The public rooms are adorned with Bedouin art and historic photographs. Guest rooms are fairly basic, and the renovations are a little haphazard, but the large family rooms with lofts are excellent value. The hotel is popular with those who appreciate the authentic atmosphere created by proprietor Walid Dajani, whose father first rented
the building from the Greek Orthodox Church in 1949.
